Delivery : Hotel Particulier Paris
As part of a private project on behalf of an individual in Paris Rive droite and in collaboration with L & B architecture studio, Mineral Product realized the floor of a “spa” area including a hammam, a shower Italian style and jacuzzi.
The Terrazzo floor is composed of several aggregates: extra white, bianco carrara, nero ebano.
This floor with its discreet pattern and luminous tone contrasts with the black walls, for a sober and elegant look.
The other walls were made of polished “deep black” concrete in a matte finish for a deep, deep effect, bringing out the brightness of the floor and the white furniture.
We also realized a prefabricated tailor-made bench, entirely cast in Terrazzo and composed of the same aggregates, in slab then sealed, always with the same Terrazzo pattern of a white, off-white, pearl gray color chart.
In the Hammam, the ground terrazzo is perfectly matched to the wooden wall covering worked according to the Japanese ancestral technique of shô sugi ban.
This technique of burning wood consists of causing a single-sided combustion of solid wood board to create a layer of carbon.
It thus effectively protects the space against moisture. Cedar is the most used wood with the technique of Yakisugi because of its robustness and unique interior aesthetics.
